Summary

Decamethylsilicocene 1 is reacted with main group element halides and organo-substituted derivatives. Reduction takes place with GaX3 and InX3 (X= C1, Br) to form the corresponding monohalides and Cp*2SiX2 4a, b (Cp*= 1, 2, 3, 4, 5-Penta-methylcyclopentadienyl). Cp* transfer occurs with AlX3 (X= C1, Br), Me2AlC1, InCl, EC12 (E= Ge, Sn, Pb) and EC13 (E= As, Sb) to form [Cp*2Al+AlC14-] 2, Cp*Al(Me)Cl 3, Cp*In 6, Cp*ECl (E= Ge 7, Sn 8, Pb 9) and Cp*ECl2 (E= As 10, Sb 11) respectively. Insertionreactions are observed with “Me2GaCl” where a mixture of products is formed (5a, b).
